      The vlog today featured this dude:


      You should go check out his channel and say hi in the comments. Every video he posts is insane.


      He has so many flight hours in a helicopter, it's like an extension of his body. Wait until you see the stuff he does in the video linked above. I didn't even know some of that was possible. Check out the move at 3:05. Crazy.

      No journal yesterday and sorry for the lousy title for this. I am a little creatively spent at this point. I have been writing like mad on Lazer Team sequel this week. Wrapping up this first draft very soon. It's great to get back to writing again. The company has been really great about allowing our writers the time they need to focus on scripts -- and I am definitely benefiting from that.


      Heading to Vancouver for VIFF for a few days. Writing is awesome, but does not make for very interesting vlogs.


      Anyone in Vancouver coming to the film festival? I don't have time to organize a meet-up, but if someone local wants to suggest a place Monday night and be able to organize it, I would definitely show up.

       A great number of you have asked me the name of the song that  serves as the unofficial theme to my vlogs. The track in question is "Go To Sleep #6",  which I  found on a royalty – free site that allows me to buy songs for the purpose of putting them in videos. So here's a link to the entry for Go To Sleep #6 but be aware that they are charging $70 for a 60-second snippet of the song if you want to buy it. The high price is to offset the royalty free nature of the track.

      Hey Burnie,


      A few months ago in the podcast you mentioned a viral video that I've been looking for for a really long time. The 'Kitty is a Very Bad Mystic' video. I don't know how, but it seems to be one of the very few pieces of media that has truly completely disappeared from the internet. I've opened a challenge on /r/GoForGold in hopes of finding it. When I do, I'll shoot you a link, if you're still interested in seeing it.

      Hey Burnie RWBY vol 4 episode 3 came today.

      And I want to say you did an awesome job as Tai. You can feel Tai's emotions and how he wants to help yang but has no real clue how to do it but he is still trying and backing off when its clear Yang wasnt having it.


      I have a disability I am deaf in my right ear hearing Tai reminded me of my own folks when they were trying but didnt know how to do it.


      So thank you.

      Hey Burnie, I wasn't sure who to talk to about this but I recently got sponsorship and i went to get six months of it but then realized I could get a free trial for a month, so I cancelled the auto-renew just in case i couldn't pay for it later. Well my time should have expired on the 18th but I still have it. I waited so long because i figured it would sort it's-self out. But there might be a bug im not sure. btw Amazing Cameo in crunch time, you should star in a series if you have time.

      Hello Mr. Burns,

      I am sure you get this a lot from fans. A few years ago I was shown a video showing an Animated Adventure, and fell in love with Rooster Teeth. It was not long before I finally sat down and watched Red vs. Blue (I cried more times than I can count), and that was followed by RWBY, Rage Quit, listening to the podcasts, and so on. I just want to say I think you are doing a wonderful job, and how Rooster Teeth has been a wonderful discovery in my life and I look forward to the future.


      Also I completely agree with you regarding your loathing of what I affectionately refer to as, "Satan's calculator," the chip readers.


      Keep up the good work!!

      Safe travels!

      If you want a reason to get out of the Apple ecosystem further, as discussed on recent podcasts, Project Fi on Nexus/Pixel phones sends texts to any phone over WiFi. 


      It makes calls over WiFi and when you don't have wifi but you have cellular service it uses that. 


      The whole plan is cheap. $20 base plan plus $10 per gig of data domestic or international (same rate), and international calling rates vary but are around $0.02 a minute.

      Hey Burnie, I left this comment on the Post Show comments, but haven't seen you post the journal on it yet.


      Here is my pre-mature response to your journal:

      I re-listen to the entirety of the RT podcasts annually. I always find it interesting how random things get produced from discussions on the RT podcast from years ago. I don't need to be on-site to work on this, and blog postings with topics being available through SEO results can help determine the most popular items. This can also be background stuff, and not have to change the way the podcast is uploaded or viewed.

      Hi Burnie!

      I didn't know who to contact about this so I thought I would try you.. I don't want to complain as I have only recently become a sponsor but the reason for this is because of this complication. For your viewers outside of the US we are not gaining very much from becoming a sponsor as the streams are at odd times and therefore cannot be watched live (a gain of being a sponsor) which makes us watch it at the same time as non-sponsors. Also the inflation of US dollars to AUS or other dollars usually makes it a lot more expensive on our side of things especially with the introduction of the double star sponsorship, I would love to do this but at around $500 a year AUS depending on the financial market makes this venture way too expensive!

      So maybe you should think about making some content for us or think about other ways you could repay us for our contributions?

      Thank you for your time and I hope your company keeps flourishing as it has in the recent years.

      Hey Burnie!


      I just had an idea for a Million Dollars But card. It would be a "thats a lot of money" card. There would only be 2 or 3 in the whole set, and you would play it at the begginging of the round. I have thought of two different options for the card:

      1. The user get to play two answers to double his chances of winning

      2. Whoever wins the round gets two points instead of one


      Hope you like the Idea!

      Figured you would see this over Twitter. On the podcast you mentioned the unboxing videos and their massive numbers where they don't necessarily equate to products being sold.


      My daughter, who is 4, loves these videos. Generally, they consist of little toys being opened in the plastic easter eggs or whatever. We buy here things here or there from the videos if it's something that really sparks her interest and she can basically explain everything about that toy.


      Now the views thing. I think these videos have so many views and no one really talks about them is because parents essentially use them as babysitters to get little things done around the house or whatver. Meaning if you have thousands of parents doing this everyday you can get millions of views pretty easily without any sort of commitment from the parents to really purchase anything.


      The Chewbacca mask video related to so many sales because it wasn't necessarily kids watching the video quietly. It may have started as that way but parents who heard the laughing and stuff from the video thought it was funny and then shared it making it blow quicker than the "shameful" here kid watch this while I clean the kitchen kind of video (which if you've ever spent time watching some have an almost ASMR quality with soft talking and crinkly paper/foil) that parents may not want to share because they're essentially using it to pacify their kids pretty much.


      I've spent a lot of time watching these videos with my daughter and trying to figure what the fuck makes them so popular. After asking a dozen or so of my parent friends and finding out they all let their kids watch the videos and we have never really discussed it more than that it's pretty much the conclusion I've drawn is that the unboxing videos feel bad because they're not "educational" at all (my daughters speech is miles ahead of kids her age and I believe it's because of the videos) while they'll share the Chewbacca video because it's cute and funny because it's a mom having more fun with the toy than her kids.


      Also that mom has now been on James Corden and had a photoshoot at Facebook with a guy in a Chewbacca outfit. So, there's that too.


      Sorry so much text again I've thought way too much about this

      Wow! This is as close to being a rockstar as you may ever come. The love that this community has for you and this company that you created is astronomical. I wonder what that feels like. I've been watching the dollar amount climb and it is amazing to me the potential power that you wield. Remember with great power.....yadda yadda yadda.

      So I'm at the scuba argument in the podcast and so its not the scu part of the SCUBA that you should be focused on. It's the uba that makes that sound. Because I'm going to scuba of the coast of Cuba, then go play my Tuba. And Incubate, that's close. Only time it doesn't work is when its part of a prefix, subatomic for example. So to sum up, English is stupid, we should talk in numbers, or not at all. I would put this on twitter but then you would only block me and I would have to sign up for twitter. love

        SCUBA isn't a word, it's an acronym, so this argument is still pointless. Because U stands for "Underwater," and G stands for "Graphics," there's no logical correlation between the word and its usual pronunciation; if nobody says "Scuhba," then there's no reason people can't say "Jiff."

        In this case, it falls down to the person who came up with the term to define how it's said correctly, and individuals can say it however they like based on what sounds best to them.

      Just finished watching the podcast. What you are referring to with the planes is TCAS (traffic collision avoidance system) used by commercial air traffic. The system essentially communicates between both planes and will give the pilots a directive. Either climb or descent. For general aviation (planes that do not have TCAS) if they are proceeding head on both pilots should break to the right to avoid a collision. Thats all I got, love the podcast.

      I was told that Pyrrha will come back near the end of season 4. I really hope that it's true. I want her back with Jaune. I hope and pray that you can bring her back to the show. But if not in volume 4, then at least have Pyrrha come back and get back with Jaune soon in the show. I want to see Jaune and Pyrrha together. They deserve each other.

        ....Not that it really matters, but why is this on Burnie's profile? He doesn't have any decision making with the actual show RWBY. There are several people who are employed at Roosterteeth who makes this show what it is. Burnie is not one of them.


        Secondly, the show will be better without Pyrrha. And I don't think Pyrrha will ever return. Pyrrah needed to fight and die against Cinder Fall to show how powerful Cinder really is. That is how basic storytelling works. Our main hero, RWBY, now understands the villain she is up against, and now we, as an audience, know now too.

        Lastly, please remember it is an animated show. "Jaune" isn't real. Miles (who is the voice of Juane) is one of the few people who had a say in the decision to kill off Pyrrah. Miles is probably not broken up about it. So neither should you. Buck up old chap, things are going to be OK. Your emotional investment is what makes it a good show. But please don't use the phrases like "deserve each other" when you are talking between two animated people. They still have plans for Jaune, lets be excited and see what comes in Volume 4.

      Hi Burnie!

      The creepy stories on the last podcast reminded me of this.

      You mentioned about sleep paralysis a while back.


      My symptoms left as soon as I stopped researching lucid-dreaming, I had a fascination with it. During the peak every day I'd take about 10 minutes before I could move, the entire time I'm really willing my body to move, think trying to lift something really heavy and my body is just struggling against me.


      It's not until I hallucinate something really terrifying that I jump out of bed. Usually shadows would grow legs and turn into these centipede type things.

      Hey Burnie, I saw this video about Fair Use on YouTube, and thought it was worth sharing it with you. Check it out when you get the chance.

That being said, I know @Ashley is hot as hell, but do you seriously have to kiss her after every....single....achievement? lol....how bout a solid high five every once in a while? I mean, you two are making the young couples look sterile? XD

  • Questions answered by burnie

    I know this question is older but I have been using a drone in lots of the vlogs.

    About 3-5 times a week, depending on if I travel that week.

    Exceed definitely. Outlast is a different animal. Fifteen+ seasons is very, very rare territory in any medium.

    Going to answer this with a quote from a fitness magazine. I think it's a great way to look at motivation, which is not something you can control:


    "Fuck motivation. it’s a fickle and and unreliable little dickfuck and isn’t worth your time.


    Better to cultivate discipline than to rely on motivation. force yourself to do things. force yourself to get up out of bed and practice. Force yourself to work. Motivation is fleeting and it’s easy to rely on because it requires no concentrated effort to get. Motivation comes to you, and you don’t have to chase after it.


    Discipline is reliable, motivation is fleeting. The question isn’t how to keep yourself motivated. It’s how to train yourself to work without it."

    Thanks, Gus. Just keep pluggin' away. You'll get there.

    I'm usually racing to hit my calorie move goal by the end of the day. I don't drink really. So I basically just browse the web. The say you aren't meant to look at screens right before falling asleep but I do it a lot.

    Nah. Part of the Q&A sessions at live events are about the interaction. I know people outside the events will often criticize the question askers, but it's not their job to be entertaining. That's our responsibility. If questions get too bland, we'll just talk for 15 minutes before taking the next one.


    The only thing I hate is the fake "oh is it my turn?" "is that what my voice sounds like?" performance garbage that some people do. I have warned audiences many times that once you get to that mic you are part of the show. I have no problem blasting you in front of 5000 people the same way I do to Gavin or Joel or Gus. It's how we show love. Basically, if you do something to slow down the energy in the room we will quickly move to get it back.

    Ashley's cat Nutmeg loves me, but she wakes me up every single day and yells at me. We get in an argument every morning. Somehow, Ash sleeps through it.

    The single hardest I have ever laughed was when I interviewed Kara for the What Do You Know show about guy movies. Her Back To The Future answers were so funny and when she said which way the car travels through time, I lost it. I literally could not stop laughing for ten minutes. They cut all of that out because my host character is meant to be supportive and deadpan, but that was just too much for me.

    Nope. Vines are hard. I have lots of respect for Vine artists.

    This might sound rude, but I've been trying to find a way to say this for a long time: I never open the flash drives people hand me. It's not that I don't like to review people's work, it's that I don't trust a flash drive I don't know in any of my computers. It's far better to have an online repository and just send that to me in a link. Sorry.


    I also don't eat baked goods that people give us at conventions. But I do appreciate them. And Blaine eats it all.

    Games is our fastest growing division. Follow Michael Hadwin on the site and/or Twitter.

    Sure, I will be the guy talking about Tharsis non-stop and not knowing what The Witness is.

    Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, Mr Robot


    I have been working through a huge backlog of movies as well. Just watched John Wick. It was great.

    Sure. Reviews don't scare me. I think I said this on a podcast after our festival run, but it's inevitable to get some bad reviews. People are brutal when talking about movies. A videogame can have parts that are broken or missing on day one and still get a 9/10. Movies don't get that same pass. I am just very happy the audience likes it. It may seem like a forgone conclusion that the RT audience would like it, but that's not at all the case. There's been plenty of shows our existing audience hated. If that had happened with Lazer Team, we would have had a big problem on our hands.

    We have tested cooking in a couple of different formats. I think the people who enjoy cooking most don't really have time to pilot a new show that far off the beaten path.


    Pancake podcast is this week and I am super excited.

    Just keep using the site and posting awesome stuff. I saw that Awesome On Its Own was making a return and that made me very happy.

    Actor -- narrative shorts and our featured productions like LT and Crunch Time

    Director -- not really directing much these days, but as a Producer I will say Immersion

    Writer -- Featured Productions and developing new series

    Sure. We moved in the middle of last year so we had to change our setup, but I can tell her you would like to start again. I'm a little reluctant to admit that I don't play that many games anymore. In the last six months I have played FO4, some Just Cause 3 and a smattering of smaller Steam games. It's one the reasons I'm not ever on The Patch. I don't have much to talk about.

    Last few years I have focused on work in front of the camera rather than behind. 2016 will put me back in the Director's chair.

    Boobs or butts?

    | Asked by: WildLemon 10 months ago

    Thankfully, I don't have to choose.

    Probably the Carribean for vacation and Australia for just general travel. Once, I went down to New Zealand and rode the train from Christchurch to Greymouth. It was an amazing journey. If you go, eat the whitebait.

    It depends on the job. If you mean a personality/artist job then there is no requirement. A lot of our personalities never went to university. Some didn't even graduate high school.

    How old is Joe the cat now?

    | Asked by: Paul_Lee 10 months ago

    Joe The Cat is about eight years old. He's getting super fat in retirement.

    Matt was telling me that the box office numbers in UK were higher than in US even though it has 1/5 the population. My response was "RTUK?", he punched me.


    I would love to have the US show be a traveling show the way MineCon does. But I know how radically inefficient that model is. Hopefully we can do more touring-style events like the LT screenings, Let's Play Live and Dude Soup Live.

    I wish I had a better answer than "I know it when I see it" but that's really the main answer. Also, our writers have to be fast. It's just the nature of what we do.

    All better. Stitches out and just stretching it every day.

    There's nothing you can do about it. Some things are constant on the internet. You can't ever say what the weather is like where you are, because people will just tell you why it's worse where they are. You also can't mention an event without people being upset that you aren't coming to where they live. No one sees all the other responses and obvious jokes when they are making their single post.

    I could not be happier. Watching fans all over the world have mini-meetups was absolutely mind blowing.

    Who's your favourite person at RT?

    | Asked by: Jodepher 10 months ago

    Ashley, depending on how nice Ashley is to me that day.
